Who will evaluate my essay?

We at WNJMS send papers to our trusted reviewers for evaluation. Since WNJMS uses a blind review procedure, the author will never know who reviewed their work. The Ethical Committee oversees the operation of WNJMS, and the journal’s editors and reviewers are the same academic authorities who serve on the editorial boards of all other worldwide refereed journals. Simply put, we ask that the reviewers prepare their reports more creatively while still upholding the standards of quality and scientific integrity, taking into account that some of the authors are less experienced researchers. Send an email to the editorial board if you are an active researcher with a Ph.D. or above and are interested in reviewing for this journal. Someone will get in touch with you for more information. 

How long would it take for the paper to be reviewed and published?

The author guidelines and the “about” section at this link both provide an estimate of the amount of time needed for review under the various available alternatives. After the article has gone through the review process and been accepted, it will take around a week to go through copyediting before being published online after obtaining any minor proofreading edits from the submitting author.
